Apple Chicken & Rice

/

So I had intended to make Caramel Apple Pork Chops but I accidentally pulled out chicken instead. I didn't realize this until I had already sliced two apples, so I was stuck. Instead I decided I would just create a recipe. Here's what happened:

Ingredients:
    • 2 Red Delicious apples 
    • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
    • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
    • 1 cup apple juice
    • 1 package boil-in-a-bag rice
    • 1 tbsp. olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Core and slice the apples into thin slices.  
2. Fill a pot with water and boil-in-a-bag rice and put over high heat.
3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Season the chicken.
4. Put oil or butter in a medium sized pan over medium-high heat. Add the apples to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes.
5. Add the seasoned chicken to the pan with the apples and brown on each side, about 3-4 minutes per side.
6. Add the apple juice and cook for 12-15 minutes more, or until chicken is done and apples are softened.
7. Serve apples and chicken over rice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

The chicken ends up staying pretty moist by cooking it in the apple juice. You can definitely add more apple juice to make more of a sauce to go over the rice. I was just throwing stuff together and had no idea how it was going to turn out.

Happy Eating!
